Dear All,

Just a wild guess but most likely a control unit trying to trip a mode in the auto that is no longer there. Was a CPU from a manual trans also switched? Possible Park safety switch. Like I said I'm just throwing out wild guesses.

Were any connections that went to the auto just left hanging? Most autos now are electronic controled. I'm from the USA and never seen anything over a 1995 model.

Yes at the moment all wiring was left sort of hanging except for the connection that switches the reverse lights. I am thinking that I screwed my suzuki as now I noticed that when I engage the 4WD, the light on the dash goes blinking and I think the front wheel hubs are not engaging. I suspect this might also be releated. What do you think?

You might be able to run jumper wires, from the 4x light switch connection, to a toggle switch and allow the front to lock in.

I suspect the 4WD problem is not related to the gearbox swap. I had a minor accident and he hit me on the wheel and lost the wheel alignment and I suspect that is the problem with the hubs not engaging. What do u think?
